Academic underachievement among students has been a persistent concern among educators, parents, and students for quite some time now. With the term ‘stakeholders'' gaining currency in education sector and an increasing awareness that learning isn''t confined to classroom conditions alone, this work is quite contemporary in depicting the impact of a correlation between parents'' perception and their participation about the academic progress of their underachieving children. This book will go a long way in helping parents of underachieving learners understand the importance of special and integrated schools and also to develop an appropriate thinking about their children''s abilities to give maximum help and cooperation to teachers and the child for improving their educational programme. This book will also help teachers in their counselling session to make use of the real practical perception of parents in shaping the lives and personalities of their children. This book is equally pertinent in the context of stress related behavioural problems among the adolescent students and contributes significantly to the existing repertoire of studies on the universal issue of underachievement.
